Find Journals: The Easy Way

This is a quick and easy way to find an article from a citation.

Winsler, A., Ducenne, L., & Koury, A. (2011). Singing one’s way to self-regulation: The role of early music and movement curricula and private speech. Early Education and Development, 22(2), 274-304

The best way is to copy and paste the journal title into the library’s homepage search box. Make sure you select the Find Journals button. Librarian tip: sometimes and and & in titles are interchangeable and sometimes they are not – if one doesn’t work try the other.

After checking our citation and the date range of the two databases, and publisher website we can jump start things by typing in the title of the article in the journal’s search box. Writing an author’s name would also work (if you have to choose – select the more unusual surname).

We’ve struck gold! The article comes up straight way.

This way of searching is part of EBSCOhost’s Discovery Service (EDS). The other way of finding articles from a citation is by drilling down by using year, issue, volume and page numbers.
